This paper evaluates detector technologies under a variety of criteria and provides user guidelines for detector technology selection. Information for the project came from applications of detector technologies, detector technology development, user manuals about specific detector devices, detector field-testing projects, and surveys of detector device vendors. Vendor surveys provided detailed information on devices, such as data type, device cost, system life, voltage supply, communication and data storage.
